Spocko-Bama is seen to have intimated that we should turn in our guns to the Space Brothers, as described in the Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of December 21, 2012. But the ghastly experience of one man belies the advice of Spocko-Bama.
The Abilene Reporter News (Abilene, TX) of October 9, 1966 carried a report by John De Groot of the Akron Beacon Journal, “Flying Saucer Wrecks a Life,” which puts these Space “Brothers” in a chilling light. Dale Spaur, a sheriff’s deputy, took “seven steps to hell and a flying saucer named Floyd.”
In the predawn hours, Spaur chased after a Space Brother vehicle for 86 miles. But then the Space Brothers began to chase him!
And Spaur ended up “a bearded stranger peering past the limp curtains of a tiny motel room in Solon, Ohio.” There he lived on a bowl of cereal and a sandwich each day.
“Now Spaur hides in Solon, a fugitive from a flying saucer named Floyd. He cannot escape the strange craft,” reported the Akron Beacon Journal.
Each night, Spaur would experience “nightly sweating dreams” which were “a bizarre mixture of reality and fantasy.”
What had happened to Spaur when he came in contact with the Space Brothers began with seven steps to hell. He and his partner, Barney Neff, were on patrol in car 13. They stopped to check on a red and white 1959 Ford parked alongside the road. The 1959 Ford had a strange emblem on its side: A triangle with a bolt of lightning, with accompanying text, “Seven steps to hell.”
It was at that instant that Spaur heard a strange humming sound. He turned and saw “a huge saucer-shaped craft rising out of a woods.” Both Spaur and his partner literally froze with fear.
Recovering their senses, Spaur and his partner raced back to their cruiser. Spaur radioed in. “Shoot it,” he was told. But Spaur feared to leave the safety of his vehicle.
Then Spaur was ordered to chase the Space Brother craft. And that he and his partner did, for 86 miles, often at speeds of over 100 miles per hour.
Finally, near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the sheriff’s deputy ran out of gas.
And after that strange encounter, the life of Dale Spaur came crashing down. His wife filed for divorce. Spaur turned in his badge. He left town.
But still, the Space Brothers followed him. “Dale Spaur wept as he told what the flying saucer named Floyd had done to him.”
As for his partner, Special Deputy Neff, he refused to talk about what had happened. His wife, Jackelyne Neff, disclosed, “I hope I never see him like he was after the chase. He was real white, almost in a state of shock. It was awful.”
Turn in our guns to the Space Brothers? I don’t think so!
